This sword is typified as an Oakeshott Type XV of classic form by its tapering stout blade, wheel pommel and straight cross guard. A style of sword that was popular with the fighting men of Southern and Eastern Europe from the 13th to the 15th Century. There are many examples illustrated in Italian art of first half of the 15th Century in particular.

This sword would have been an excellent weapon for a Knight of the period with a strong blade well suited to the thrust as well as the cut. Period fight manuals, such as the Flower of Battle by Fiore dei Liberi depict just such swords.

The pommel of the original sword was inset with a copper coin depicting the Duke of Urbino. While our supply of 14th century copper coins does not allow us to include one, you may want to add your own decoration to the pommel by gluing something into the insets as they did on the original.
